Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ300/FZ330

 

With an integral 25-600mm Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens and splash-proof and dustproof construction, the Panasonic FZ300 becomes the ideal travelling companion for enthusiast photographers. The FZ300 offers a 12.1MP 1:2.3 inch High Sensitivity MOS sensor...

Panasonic Lumix FZ300

 

The Panasonic Lumix FZ300 is one of the only cameras available that can turn that " or" into an " and ." Typically, if you want a rugged camera, one that can really handle drops and is waterproof, it won't have a very long zoom lens. The opposite is...

The Panasonic Lumix FZ300 has a best-in-class 24x f2.8 25-600mm lens; excellent photo and video quality for a small-sensor compact; extensive shooting mode and setting options; comfortable body and control layout; its body is weather resistant; and it...

The controls and setting navigation may be overwhelming if you're used to "leaving it in Auto." Because of the lens, it is bigger -- and more expensive -- than other small-sensor cameras with comparable zoom ranges. No headphone jack.

The Panasonic Lumix FZ300 might not be a huge update from its predecessor, the FZ200, but it's still one of the best in its class and a fantastic option for a single camera for photos and video -- even in the rain.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300

 

The excellent Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 superzoom offers a long focal range with a fixed-aperture lens, 4K video, and instant autofocus.

24x zoom lens with f/2.8 aperture. All-weather build. Excellent EVF. Vari-angle touch-screen display. Very fast autofocus. 12.4fps burst shooting. Strong high ISO images for its class. Raw image capture. 4K video.

Expensive. Large-sensor superzooms offer better image quality. Zoom range isn't as ambitious as others.

Conclusions Panasonic's FZ200 stayed on the market for quite some time—it was a standout performer upon its release and still an excellent choice if you buy it today at a very friendly price point. The FZ300 maintains the 12-megapixel image sensor and...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300

 

Panasonic has announced its successor to the FZ200. Dubbed the LUMIX DMC-FZ300, this new all-in-one offers a 24x optical zoom range. That's 25-600mm in 35mm equivalence. The remarkable thing, though, is the constant f/2.8 maximum aperture allowing for...

Panasonic Lumix FZ300 review: A killer lens backed by astounding features and performance

 

It might look like an average megazoom point-and-shoot, but I assure you, the splash- and dustproof FZ300 is anything but average.

A Review of the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ300K 4K, Point and Shoot Camera with Leica DC Lens 24X Zoom

 

Panasonic has come out with some excellent mirrorless and DSLR point-and-shoot cameras over the last few years and the Lumix DMC-FZ300 is looking to be no exception to this trend. This camera is the direct successor to 2012's superb superzoom, the...

Excellent built-in zoom lens ; 4K Photo mode great feature for difficult still images ; Great weather-resistant design ; Superb video quality ; Decent ISO

Slightly on the pricey side ; Sensor could be more powerful ; No zoom ring around lens

Despite a few weaknesses, we absolutely recommend the Lumix DMC-FZ300 for most amateur users who want to learn the ropes of 4K video and high-res photo shooting without spending a fortune. This is a very nicely rounded superzoom point-and-shoot camera.

Panasonic FZ300 Review

 

The Panasonic FZ300 improves upon the FZ200 in numerous ways while building upon the same tried-and-true 12.1-megapixel sensor and 24-600mm equivalent f/2.8 lens. The redesigned body, improved EVF, and better tilting display really help the FZ300...

Good image quality for its class; Improved ergonomics; Impressive new EVF and rear display; Versatile 24-600mm equivalent f/2.8 lens; Faster autofocus performance; 4K video and 4K Photo features

Bulky camera body; Excessive default noise reduction applied at lower ISOs; Continuous autofocus performance is inconsistent

Panasonic Lumix FZ330 / FZ300 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix FZ330, or FZ300 as it's known in North America, is a high-end super-zoom camera with a 24x optical range and constant f2.8 focal ratio. Announced in July 2015, it's the successor to the FZ200 launched three years previously. The...

24x f2.8 constant focal ratio zoom lens ; Dust and splash proof ; Big 1440k dot OLED viewfinder with eye sensor ; Fully articulated touchscreen ; 4k UHD video at 24 and 25/30p ; 4k photo modes including Post Focus

No NFC ; Photos prone to noise compared to models with bigger sensors

The Lumix FZ330 / FZ300 updates the three year old Lumix FZ200 retaining the older model's constant aperture 24x / f2.8 lens and 12 Megapixel MOS sensor. The Venus processor is updated along with a much bigger and more detailed viewfinder and a higher...
